When the Well Runs Dry

Article text
Members of Dawlish and Teignmouth camera club benefitted from the vast knowledge of fellow member Ken Holland ARPS DPAGB , when he gave a talk titled "when the well runs dry", designed to help give inspiration when most needed.
Ken is a very experienced photographer, regularly lecturing at other clubs as well as judging competitions. He has also published several photographic books, his latest being a study of "little poland", the now derelict polish camp at Stover.
He advised getting to know ones own camera and how it works before experimenting with different tecniques, slow and fast shutter speeds, small and large apertures, black and white and colour, using various lenses and filters to achieve different effects.
Ken also spoke of some of his favourite photgraphers, Ansel Adams, Sebastio Salgado, Henri Cartier Bresson to name a few, showing examples of their work.
All members went home inspired with new ideas which will hopefully benefit their future photography.
